2015 ER-6nL ABS
This is the latest evolution of the model that introduced the Fun. Style. Easy concept to the world. With a 39kW engine, the performance makes the 2015 ER-6nL ABS fun to ride. Aggressive, street-fighter looks combined with performance create an enviable package. A slim chassis and comfortable new seat make it even easier to ride than before.
Whether a new rider getting acquainted with the joy of motorcycling for the first time, or an experienced rider looking for a fun, stress-free way to get around, the package offered by the ER-6nL has never been more tempting.
649 cm³ Parallel Twin
Liquid-cooled, DOHC, 8-valve 649 cm³ Parallel Twin with fuel injection delivers smooth, responsive performance, especially in the low and medium rpm ranges.
The engine was tuned for rider-friendly power characteristics that will inspire confidence in new riders.
Dual ø300 mm petal discs are gripped by new twin-piston calipers. The design of the new calipers contributes to the bike’s sportier image, while new brake pad material offers a stronger initial bite when the brakes are first applied.
The front brake master cylinder features a lever ratio that contributes to both increased controllability and increased overall brake force. Large rear disc measures ø250 mm. The increased controllability and brake force are reassuring when touring or when riding with a heavy load.
Together with the compact engine and new rear frame, the frame’s design realises a package that is slim, low, lightweight and compact.
The compact engine allows use of a slim, minimalist frame, resulting in a design that is narrow at the knees and feet.
Low seat height
Thanks to the low seat height and slim overall design, it’s easier to keep both feet firmly on the ground when stopped, an important consideration for many riders.
While the new seat does not lower the seat height, its construction and the narrower distance between the pivot covers result in a slimmer package between the rider’s feet. Riders are now able to put their feet on the ground approximately 50 mm closer together (each side), which makes the reach to the ground feel significantly shorter.
38 mm Keihin throttle bodies
The DFI settings boost the engine’s bottom-end power while letting it rev more quickly. The sub-throttle valve equipped 38 mm Keihin throttle bodies offer optimum performance and rideability.
Located behind the main throttle valves, the sub-throttles are controlled by the DFI system’s ECU for a precise throttle response, similar to a constant velocity carburettor.
Smoother power delivery
Tucked away under the engine is the stylish exhaust for the ER-nL. The under engine muffler with large volume internal construction delivers smooth torque in the everyday range below 7,000rpm. The increased performance facilitates control at lower rpm and contributes to the enhanced enjoyment of the Ninja 650.
On the header pipes there is a connector tube joining the pipes to help eliminate peaks and valleys in the torque curve, resulting in smoother power delivery.
